Lucille’s Mountain Top Inn & Spa in Sautee Nacoochee, Georgia, is full of surprises.
Lucille’s was recently named one of the most luxurious inns in the United States of America by BedAndBreakfast.com. Spend one night there and you’ll agree that esteemed honor is no surprise at all.
After 25 years of meandering in the “mountains” of North Georgia, I thought I had been up, down and around every road, valley and hilltop via car, Jeep or motorcycle. I was surprised to find Rabun Road and the truly world-class bed & breakfast inn atop a nearby hill.
The views from Lucille’s Mountain Top Inn & Spa are nothing less than stunning. I was surprised that such a spot existed in the Helen, Georgia, region. Before I unloaded my bags I was on the veranda inhaling mountain air and reveling in the spectacular panoramic view.
Darrell and Peggy Darnbush of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, were at Lucille’s for the first time too, celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary.
Peggy researched luxury bed and breakfast inns that could rival the mountain top experience of this milestone in their marriage. They chose Lucille’s Mountain Top Inn & Spa.
When I asked what they loved most about it, I was surprised to hear Peggy say, “The breakfast!”
Surprising, until you share that delight at Lucille’s. Two courses, with every manner of fruit, juice, type of coffee and/or tea … and the heavenly view.
I’m not sure what they called the second course of my meal, but I called it Delicious Quiche in a Fort Made of Bacon. Wow.
You won’t catch me photographing my breakfast at Waffle House, but at Lucille’s? Standard operating procedure.
